I love homemade meatballs and this is one of my favorite recipes.  It’s great when my kids eat ALL their dinner!   This is such a good recipe and so easy to make and you can use them in so many different ways: pasta, subs, soups or just by themselves.

Eggless Meatball Recipe

This Italian meatballs without eggs really stand out.  I usually double or triple the recipe because they are perfect to freeze for another time.  I love throwing frozen meatballs in the crock pot with a jar of sauce, putting on low and dinner is ready a few hours later.

How do I freeze meatballs

Freezing meatballs is simple. You can add them to an airtight freezer-safe container or a freezer baggie. You can pull them out in advance or throw them in sauce, still frozen.

I love these containers for freezer storage. They hold a bunch, reusable, you can see through them and you can even use a Sharpie to write on top. They are perfect for soups and sauces too.

Ingredients for Eggless Meatball Recipe

Ground beef– I normally use 80/20.

Ground turkey– You con’t have to use ground turkey in this recipe. It can be 100% ground beef, if that’s what you have.

Breadcrumbs– I keep panko-style breadcrumbs in my pantry and that’s normally what I use.

Parmesan cheese– I’ve never used freh parmesan cheese in this recipe. I normally use the grated style that’s located in the pasta section in the grocery store.

Garlic– Fresh garlic is best for this recipe and it should be minced. Jarred minced garlic is a perfect time saver for this recipe.

Onion– These should be chopped in very small pieces.

Spices -oregano, basil, salt, and black pepper

Milk– Just a little milk will help moisten up your mixture. If you use all ground beef, you may not need the milk.

How to make homemade eggless meatballs

Step 1

Combine all ingredients in large bowl .  Mix thoroughly using hands. These are my VERY favorite mixing bowls.

Step 2

Form 1 inch balls with the meat mixture and place on a baking sheet.

Step 3

Broil for 3 minutes, flip, broil another 3 minutes.

This recipe should make about 20-30 meatballs.    If you make your meatballs larger, make sure to cook them a tad longer.
